Former heavyweight world champion David Haye will make his return to boxing against Australian Mark de Mori at London's O2 Arena on 16 January.
Haye has not fought since he stopped fellow Briton Dereck Chisora in 2012.
The 35-year-old has been training with Shane McGuigan - son of former world champion Barry - and is aiming to reclaim the world title he lost to Wladimir Klitschko in 2011.
De Mori has lost only once in his 33 career bouts.
The 33-year-old Perth-born boxer's last defeat came in 2004, and 26 of his 29 victories have come via knockout.
"I could have picked an easier opponent," said Haye. "I could have fought someone who'd been knocked out a couple of times but I wanted to give people someone to get excited about.
"He is top 10. I don't want to fight complete nobodies. I believe if I can do what I'm doing in the gym on 16 January then I'll be better than I used to be."
De Mori said: "One thing his team may not know is that 90% of my career I trained in my dad's garage.
"I had a few fights with my wife in my corner. That's the guy they have seen on Youtube and are preparing for. But I've lived in Croatia for the last two years and have gone from training in my garage to training with a coach who is a two-time Olympian.
